Bottled 11/05/14

Appearance- Orange golden/amber in color and pretty hazy.

Aroma- Pungent grapefruit, mango, and tangerines. Some general malt sweetness as well.

Taste- Acidic and bitter grapefruit is most noticeable from the first sip. Middle and finish are mellowed out by a sweet cracker/caramel malt combo (more so the cracker), and softer and fruitier hops as well (mango, pineapple,etc).

Feel- Soft, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a pleasant dry/clean/crisp finish.

Overall- I've seen a ton of this sitting around and I'm pretty confused as to why as it still tastes fresh as hell and its just a really good beer. Really nice soft tropical hop flavors and great drinkabilility that jacks abby ipl's have. At 4 or 5 bucks for a pint bottle its a solid value too.

All around pretty decent. Smell is good but not worthy of a higher rating.

For me, this beer is unique. The body of this beer is a cloudy straw color. The head is white and fluffy, and the lacing is pretty sticky. Sweet earthy aroma...like sweet hay or corn...unique. The taste is of watered down citrus, over light creamed corn and wheat bread...interesting. The feel and carbonation is medium, nothing more, nothing less. Pretty standard feel for a nice beer, it fits.

Overall, I am impressed. Very unique look, smell, and taste. Refreshingly uncommon beer.

This beer is a double india pale lager, not a pilsner.
